There's Truth is Jest, The Daily Show Serves the Political Pundit's Doublespeak - Sarah Palin Gender Card

You got to hand it to Jon Stewart. Whether you like him or not, The Daily Show serves up a daily lambasting of the hypocrisy spewed by the political pundits of the right wing. This excerpt, Sarah Palin Gender Card, was featured this past week as part of the RNC08 coverage and I'm featuring here as part of the political convention wrap up.

You can watch the full episode here. Enjoy!

From Wikipedia: Doublespeak (sometimes double talk) is language constructed to disguise or distort its actual meaning, often resulting in a communication bypass. Doublespeak may take the form of bald euphemisms (e.g., "downsizing" for layoffs) or deliberate ambiguity. Doublespeak is a disparaging label for any euphemistic term perceived to be uttered in bad faith.[1]
